Return of the Trumpeter!

Ok, I'm sorry.

It's amazing how real life has a way of preventing me from doing things, like blogging.

Well, it's summer time now, so here's to trying to get back into doing some semi-regular posting here.

I'll write a post to appraise everyone of what I've been up to since I last posted and the continuation of both the "Audition Blogs" and the "What I'm practicing" series. Of course, many more "Motivators" are on tap, as well!

Please, stay tuned, and keep visiting. I'll try to make it worth your while!
